West Ham manager Slaven Bilic has poured cold water over rumours that the club had bid for Southampton star Dusan Tadic.
'These media tabloids like to make up stuff as they go along', laughed the West Ham boss. 'As it stands, we have expressed no interested in this player.'
Meanwhile, sources at St Mary's Stadium have said that the club will reject any advances for the Southampton midfielder.
'They've basically issued a hands-off warning to West Ham.'
